Overview


Rome is an incessant explosion of history, with its hub often compared to an open-air museum. This Half-Day Segway Tour won’t just get you up close and personal with the city’s rich also add a dose of thrill to your sightseeing journey as you glide around in a personal transporter.

Breezing past gurgling fountains, lively squares and ancient monuments, it’s a tour that makes you walk through the pages of a history book. We begin with a brief and fun training session on how to safely cruise around on your Segways, and glide straight over quintessential Roman (typical basalt paved pavements synonymous with Italian cities) into the heart of the Eternal City. The trail of attractions is incredible to say the least, beginning with one of the city’s prettiest streets - Via dei Fori Imperiali - originally built on the orders of Mussolini and dividing Trajan's Markets and the historic Roman Forum right up to the Capitoline Square. 

As you arrive at the city , you will be greeted by the unmatched beauty of the Piazza Navona and the gorgeous Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi or the Fountain of the Four Rivers, sculpted by the legendary Bernini. The stellar fountain is barely a few minutes away from the Roman Pantheon, dating back to the reign of Hadrian in 126AD, our next . Besides being an architectural feat courtesy the genius of an acting the temple’s primary source of natural light and having the world’s largest “unreinforced concrete dome”, it is also home to the earthly remains of the best Renaissance painter - Raphael. 

We will continue on to the iconic Trevi Fountain, built by the celebrated Italian sculptor, Panini, and possibly the most famous fountain in the world, appearing in notable movies like La Dolce Vita, The Lizzie McGuire Movie, and more. The renowned Spanish Steps, dating back to the early 18th century, is also on our itinerary, letting you soak up its heritage as you cross the flight of 174 steps.
